Leaving the major decisions about your divorce settlement in the hands of a judge is difficult, stressful and does not always produce the best results for a family. After all, no one knows your family better than you and your ex-spouse. It is next to impossible for a judge to learn about all of the family dynamics, conflict, special circumstances, etc. Mediation allows you to make these important decisions with the help and guidance of a trained and experienced mediator, rather than giving this decision power to the courts
The divorce process is all consuming and likely is the culmination of many months or years of high conflict and unhappiness. Once you make the decision to divorce, it can be difficult to see past the process, as the divorce process itself can take many months, especially if you go through the courts. Johnson Mediation offers an alternative to this model of a long, drawn-out process. Divorce mediation allows you to see past the divorce process to your future. Focusing on your future and your family, rather than the pain of your past can give you the strength you need to take those final steps through the process.

Fortunately, divorce is something that some people never have to go through and for those that do, you are likely to only go through it once in your life.

Understanding the process can be a helpful step for preparing and being ready for what is next. Here are three of the most common divorce myths and the truth behind them.
While every relationship and divorce is unique, there are some noticeable trends that can help you think about your situation and how the process is likely to go.
